The small town in America: dead or alive or dying? And how do we know that? Where does America learn about the little towns that dot the landscape and the Rand-McNally maps? What images of small communities appear in film and on tv? What do Mellencamp or Springsteen sing about those towns? How does Faulker, Anderson, Welty, or Proulx characterize such places? What exactly is the role of 'dragging Main?'
Length: 8-12 minute presentations.
